Grampy Changing a Tire

I was so excited to find this photo of my Grampie and his buddy "Lefty" changing a tire on this cool old car! I immediately thought of the Crafty Secrets "Favorite Fellas" stamp set and made a copy of the photo for myself! The chipboard album shape is by Crafty Secrets and can be used as a photo album or wall hanging. I traced the chipboard shape on patterned paper from Crafty's "Classic" Paper pad, and then used stamps from "Favorite Fellas" to stamp directly onto the patterned paper with black ink. The map is from an old road atlas that I paid .75 cents for at a junk shop.

Crafty also sells little packages of small chipboard shapes & frames and buckles....I grabbed a chipboard oval shaped piece and stamped a crown on it. I colored the crown with Copic Markers (Yellow Ochre, Lipstick Red & Blue Green BG09) and then added small colored gemstones to it to give it the royal bling treatment!

I love this photo...I'm going to have to ask Grams if she knows what the story is behind it. VERY cool car! :)

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Hi much fun would it be to go "tooling around" hitting the garage sales in Gramps car?
